The Ilkley-based online training provider, High Speed Training, has become the first in the UK to be awarded a Skills for Health Quality Mark Digital accreditation, which recognises course programmes of the highest possible standard in the healthcare industry.

Skills for Health is the UK’s Sector Skills Council for Healthcare supporting workforce development, recruitment, and retention initiatives to improve the competencies that provide better patient outcomes. Its industry-recognised endorsement provides reassurance that training has been robustly assessed, to meet nationally recognised expectations of the UK health sector.

High Speed Training is an online training provider which specialises in compliance and personal development courses. It has been establishing its presence in the Health and Social Care sector throughout the pandemic, producing free crucial training guidance for all frontline healthcare workers.

This led to the provider receiving endorsement from strategic industry body, Skills for Care, before becoming the first successfully endorsed holder of Quality Mark Digital from Skills for Health.

Laura Faber, service delivery manager, Skills for Health, said: “High Speed Training was the first e-learning provider to earn the QMD endorsement due to their high quality courses, collaborative ethos, and demonstrating that colleagues work alongside the company vision and values, in all that they do.

“The Quality Mark is a highly regarded Quality Assurance award for face to face training provision. The Quality Mark Digital was developed to offer e-learning providers the same access to a robust QA methodology, to suit their delivery.”

Dan Jordan, CEO of High Speed Training said: “We work tirelessly to ensure our online training is appropriate, accurate and meaningful to a variety of sectors and careers. Being awarded the Skills for Health Quality Mark Digital is an achievement we’re very proud of as the quality mark demonstrates that we are a trusted training provider for healthcare employers and staff.”
